Hello All

I am hoping someone can help me.

As a newbie to the cPanel world i wondered if, with great connections on the Forum, anyone could help me.

Everyday my inbox is full of the same email ... unfortunately, i have absoluteley no idea what it means.

I wonder if anyone could point me in the right direction with a possible soulution, as I am pretty sure it is of relevance to me, i don't just want to keep ignoring it. (it's also very annoying seeing 12156 in my junk box)


email reads:

Cron <[email protected]> /usr/lib64/sa/sa1 1 1

Cannot open /var/log/sa/sa11: No such file or directory

Hello,


This just indicates that you have a cron running which is trying to get the sysstats output for a file that doesn't exist. What is the output of the following:

Code:
crontab -l

Hi Lauren

I am not too sure what it relates to, that is all i get in every email:

Cannot open /var/log/sa/sa12: No such file or directory

Hello,

As I mentioned previously, this is a cron job implemented on the server for the sysstats program, which lists system statistics in folders by date so /var/log/sa/sa12 would be for the 12th day of the month.

I requested you provide the output of:

Code:
crontab -l
So that I could potentially determine what is initiating the cron job as well as give you the option to remove it, if it's not something you're using.
